Cannonhead Clash

Cannonhead Clash is a two player bomb-lobbing game featuring two things, known as Cannonheads, chucking bombs at each other. The object of the game is to hit the other Cannonhead with a bomb, causing them to fall into the water below. The bombs can also be used to destroy the terrain! Use this to your advantage, and try not to let your side get destroyed too much--you can't jump, and you can't climb up walls more than one block high!

To move your Cannonhead, all you need to do is hold left or right on the joystick. The fire button allows you to shoot your bomb. Remember, the longer you hold down the fire button before releasing it, the farther your bomb will go! Strategy and quick thinking are key--may the best Cannonhead win!

If you'd like a boxed copy of Cannonhead Clash, please select "Box Upgrade: Yes" at the top of the page before adding Cannonhead Clash to your cart. Our boxes are professionally printed and include a box insert to hold your Cannonhead Clash cartridge in place. We want you to play our games, so we have not sealed or shrinkwrapped the boxes in any way, allowing you easy access to the game cartridge and manual.

These boxes are the same size as boxes Atari produced for their games "back in the day". They look great sitting on a shelf with your other boxed homebrew games, or alongside games from the classic Atari 2600 library. We only have a limited number of boxes for each game, and there is no guarantee they will become available again once our supplies are exhausted.

This game is gold and 100% nails it in the gameplay department. The fact it is 2 player is an immediate but is a lot of fun, it has that addictive quality and it is very competitive. This is the game my kids ask to play and we have some great battles. For fun on your Atari this is a must buy.

Its rare to find a game that could have been done on the 2600 already and just hasn't been. This is one of those perfect "shoulda been" titles. Is it complex? Impossible programming? A technical feat? Nope. is it a LOT of classic Atari fun? 100%!

This is right up there with Fall Down for me. It's one of those classic two player style games that would have been mega hits if just someone had thought of it! The characters are adorable, the levels are unique and clever, and the premise is so simple anyone can pick up and play. It's ideal for a fast two player game, but I gotta admit, the CP ain't no slouch. This game is a legit "Blast".
